In 1854, Victorian miners fought a deadly battle under the flag of the Southern Cross at the Eureka Stockade. Though brief and doomed to fail, the battle is legend in both our history and in the Australian mind. Henry Lawson wrote poems about it, its symbolic flag is still raised, and even the nineteenth-century visitor Mark Twain called it "a strike for liberty".Was this rebellion a fledgling nation's first attempt to assert its independence under colonial rule? Or was it merely rabblerousing by unruly miners determined not to pay their taxes?In his inimitable style, Peter FitzSimons gets into the hearts and minds of those on the battlefield, and those behind the scenes, bringing to life Australian legends on both sides of the rebellion.

Pastor William M. Templeton has accomplished what I wish many other pastors would do-that is, for the sake of his people and his readers, to grapple with the Bible. Understanding Genesis is a book full of insight not merely from the shelves of the library but also out of ministry and experience in walking with God. While this book may not have all the footnotes that professors might provide, it has insights that arise from walking among the people toward the City of God. Paige PattersonPresidentSouthwestern Baptist Theolgical SeminaryFort Worth, TexasThe Book of Genesis is the "Book of Beginnings." William Templeton in his book, Understanding Genesis endeavors to present the historical facts, genealogies, and lives and actions of six great men of the faith in clear, applicable, and understandable terms. Arranged in a unique way around the "times" of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph, this book takes the reader through Genesis identifying the plans, purposes, and principles of God and relating them to modern man living in modern times.William Templeton has been pastoring churches for more than three decades. He is married to the former Bonita Arlene Irby. The Templetons have four grown children, seven grandchildren, and counting. William Templeton attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University from 1969 through 1972. He then transferred to what is now Liberty University where he majored in pastoral studies and theology. For thirty-eight years, Bill has been studying Scripture in an effort to bring the word of God to every person in a clear and understandable fashion.Other books by William Templeton How To Make Your Dating Years FUN!

Because deception is usually considered immoral, it is surprising to find so many occurrences of it within Genesis, often perpetrated by Israel's venerated patriarchs. While deception in Genesis has been addressed in piecemeal fashion in previous studies, this is the first time that it has been dealt with comprehensively. This book analyzes this phenomenon from the perspectives of the Bible itself, later Jewish exegetical tradition, ancient Near Eastern parallels, and folklore. These perspectives unanimously indicate that the moral evaluation of deception in Genesis is both complex and unique in the ancient and modern world.

The Genesis of Arabic Narrative Discourse

After formulating a theoretical foundation for the sociology of narrative genres based on the work of Bakhtin, Foucault, Goldmann, Jauss and Said, this work challenges the widely held assumption that Arabic culture stagnated before its contact with the West at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Hafez traces the revival to the mid-eighteenth century and follows its development throughout the Arab world, showing how the emergence of a new reading public with its distinct 'world view' induced the process of the transformation and genesis of a new literary discourse. This is followed by a study of the dynamics of this process and an outline of the various stages of the formation and transformation of the new narrative discourse until it culminates in the production of a sophisticated and mature narrative. The Genesis of Arabic Narrative Discourse shifts the terms of the debate on the rise of narrative from formal analysis to an analysis of social formation, clarifying many of the issues which have long dogged critical discussion. It changes the nature of literary history by overlaying its dry chronology with the vivid socio-cultural dimension and by achieving a fine balance between the textual and contextual. It tests its major theoretical suppositions by tracing the historical development of narrative discourse, as well as througha detailed and sensitive analysis of a short story in a manner that changes the nature of Arabic literary criticism and puts it on an equal footing with modern critical discourse in Western culture.

Understanding Nazi Ideology

Nazism did not arise in a vacuum but was deeply rooted in German culture. From the fertile soil of German Romanticism sprang ideas of great significance for the genesis of the Third Reich's ideology--notions of the individual as a mere part of the national collective, and of life as a ceaseless struggle between opposing forces. This book traces the origins of the "political religion" of Nazism. Ultranationalism and totalitarianism, racial theory and antisemitism, nature mysticism and occultism, eugenics and social Darwinism, adoration of the Fuhrer and glorification of violence are all explored. The book also depicts the dramatic development of the Nazi movement--and the explosive impact of its political faith, passionately racing from its bloody birth in the trenches of World War I to its cataclysmic climax in the Holocaust and World War II.
